I wanted to share a few pictures and a mini interview with my sister-in-law Caitlin. She lives in Boston and is expecting a baby boy in November — her first. Caitlin is one of those women who always looks amazing — stylish and relaxed whether she’s dressed for a wedding in a 70s-inspired gown or hanging out on a sleepy Sunday in cutoffs and a plain tank. She’s great at spotting the best pieces from Zara, H&M, and Asos – stores I often find overwhelming since there’s so much to choose from.
Needless to say, her maternity style hasn’t missed a beat. She’s made some smart shopping decisions too — seeking out non-maternity shift dresses that have enough room for her growing bump (especially when she sizes up) or having dresses tailored a touch to flatter her new figure like she did with the sweet polka dot dress below.
See what she has to say below.
What’s been your best maternity buy?
J.Crew Maternity Toothpick Jeans
- Pea in the Pod on Newbury Street
- Zara – not maternity specific but I’ve bought a lot of dresses & shirts that can work as maternity & after the baby is born
- Holiday – also not maternity but a boutique on Charles Street in Beacon Hill – love the vintage style and their jewelry
- Asos maternity – love that it’s affordable and they’ve got a lot of cute stuff
